RS Light Vest

When you need a little extra warmth during active winter pursuits, throw on the Salomon RS Light Vest for wind-blocking protection and breathable warmth. Its hybrid design features a light yet durable AdvancedSkin Shield fabric up front that stops chilly gusts of wind in their path, and a breathable stretch-mesh back panel that helps you move and lets heat escape, so you can stay comfortable as you hammer through long Nordic ski treks and frigid runs on the road. The front fabric is treated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating to shed light rain and moderate snowfall, so you don't have to turn around if the weather gets a little bit iffy. This jacket is also super light and ultra-packable, so you can toss it into your pack for all-season adventures where you might need a little more weather protection.

Breathable Protection - Not just for XC

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium
  • Height: 5'10"
  • Weight: 175lbs

While trying out XC skiing one snowy day, a friend let me borrow this vest.
After a few laps I quickly realized this was going to be my new favorite piece of ski touring gear.

When you generate lots of heat and need wind protection look no further. The wind blocker in the chest/shoulders gives you protection just where its needed, but still lets you dump maximum heat on the way up. It's kinda like a mullet, business up front with the wind pro and a party out back with the mesh venting letting all the heat out. Combine this vest with a zip-neck baselayer for ultimate comfort.

This is a snug Medium, but is appropriate for the designed use. Go up one size if you want a looser fit.
